Lots of two-stars here and well Idk I sort of get it, though I'm hesitant because it's still the Grateful Dead and it's definitely not a train-wreck. I don't love this AUD recording and likely will never revisit this one. Garcia also on the whole uneven.
Still, the first set highlights are - no surprise - So Many Roads and Eternity. God help me with that Childhood's End. Oh, and love the Deal closer. "Go Jerry!" Post-set crowd conversation reality-check: "That's was great! (Inaudible... something about letting the aisle clear.) It was OK...."
Much better second set. Hornsby joins for the whole set, on accordion, and it's a whopper at nearly two hours. The final set of Su94 and you get a China-Rider, PITB->UJB, a monster Drumz, Days Between, and feel good NFA vibes to send you home. Brokedown Palace encores.
Some more (post-show) crowd banter:
"What a summer... good way to end it, too."
"Great show... like a different band from last night.."

But it really was a lackluster show... not even bad, but dull. And sometimes dull can be worse than bad. I'd have to say that it was the worst show I saw since 1988. And, unfortunately, it was also the LAST show I saw. One year later, Jerry was dead. I wish that hadn't been the last but, you know, given where he was at by that point, another show could've even been worse.
Subject: Show was kind of poor
Subject: I remember it fairly well

Subject: Giant letdown
And the encore of Brokedown Palace when Jerry was laughing and smiling when his playing wasn't something to smile about. Pretty nice recording though.

Subject: the "SMR" project
Subject: Much better than the previous night
Subject: Nice comeback
Subject: Crazy night
so if i must rate this one, it certainly wasn't at the top musically but crazy memories warrant a 4
